NITTY-GRITTY:

The story of Nitty-Gritty is tipically Italian: a story of talent, passion, and a bit of chance. In September 1995, three friends – with completely different professional expertise and experience –, while working on some stainless steel prototypes, became aware that, at least in Italy, there were no efficient alternatives to the pickling paste for weld cleaning. Driven by curiosity, they studied the pickling technologies that already existed on the market. By analysing the cons and limits of the latter, they succeeded in building a technologically more advanced machine for weld cleaning. They also started a research and development programme – ongoing today – which has allowed Nitty-Gritty both to sell more than 50,000 machines all over the world and to provide their weld pickling machines with all the main technical innovations.

The stainless steel culture and the extraordinary know-how has now made Nitty-Gritty a stainless steel specialist, able to constantly improve their machines and to design and build ad hoc electrolyte weld cleaning machines for their customers. This ensures an indisputable result that makes the stainless steel shine: this is Nitty-Gitty’s mission, their trade-mark.
